Coming to Thunderbird Show Park (tbird) is an opportunity to see Olympic level riders right in your backyard. Thunderbird is currently ranked #2 in all of North America as a premier show jumping competition facility by top North American riders. We host 6 major events through the year, each event has various competitions running all day from 8AM to 5PM, Wednesday to Sunday, and are free and open to the public for spectating. Our Grand Prix events are held the Sunday of each competition at 2PM, where the top riders compete for the fastest, fault free round. For these specialty events, parking is $10 per carload, and general admission is free! There is both covered and uncovered bleacher seating available or you can bring your own chairs and set up on the grass berm. Two permanent restaurants provide fantastic food all week during each show, and food trucks come in on special event days. There is also a VIP seating area with covered table seating and a catered meal included in a $75 ticket. These tickets can be purchased through our website, under ticket sales, and will be available the Monday before each event. For more information on the horse show lingo scroll down! Event dates can be found on our event calendar.
Thunderbird is located on the corner of 248th Street and 72nd Avenue in Langley. For spectators taking Highway 1, exit at the 232nd Street exit heading North and take 72nd Avenue East from the roundabout North of the highway. Drive 3.5 km to 248th Street, turn right and the spectator entrance is on your right. We are just 10 minutes from downtown Fort Langley, a great stop for before or after the show.
Wheel Chair & Stroller Access
Our park is wheelchair and stroller accessible. Please remember that while our dirt roads are wide and well maintained they are also filled with horses, golf carts, bikes and can be quite muddy. We have a number of handicap equipped bathrooms in different locations throughout the site. If you want to access the main grounds with a wheelchair we suggest using the 72nd Street entrance, as that allows the easiest access to the Grand Prix ring for a wheelchair. For extra assistance, please contact us by phone at 604.888.4585.
Group visits can include catered lunches, buffets, and snacks. Grand Prix Events can be viewed from under our tents or in closer seating to the Grand Prix Field. A host from guest services will provide information on show jumping and will be able to take care of any requests.
